    Observations on rainrot over the years.

    Horses who are groomed daily don't seem to get it.

    I think that in this case, it is the rider's inability to follow the horse's head at the trot with an elastic feel, combined with a tendency to use too much hand and not enough leg. As said before...

    Snicklefritz, the OP is the doer, not the owner.

    Ghazzu, these horses are normally out, out, most days in summer. The dose times set work...

    RIP-Roger Haller.

    How sad. Roger was a wonderful supporter of grass roots eventing, a job he dispatched with panache.
